We look forward to our regular face mask pampering sessions – there’s nothing quite like draping a cotton mask soaked in all kind of moisturising, brightening and anti-ageing liquid goodness at the end of a long day (even better if they’re taken nice and cold straight out of the fridge).
Now, you might be extra tempted to take a selfie with your face mask on, with the animal face masks that have started popping up. Yes, these are literally facial masks that are designed like animal faces, featuring all kinds of critters from sheep to dragons. It’s an actual trend, especially since they’ve been spotted on Korean celebrities in various variety shows.

The best part might be that these masks actually do your skin good. THEFACESHOP’s range of Character Mask Sheets feature the Sheep, Dragon, Panda, Tiger and Fox masks that contain hyaluronic acid and collagen, to soothe dry and flaky skin. The BRTC Animal Masks come in shark, sheep, horse and bird versions, each one performing a different function such as moisturising, energising, and boosting elasticity.
THEFACESHOP Character Mask Sheets, $3.90 per sheet, available at THEFACESHOP outlets; BRTC Animal Masks, $3.90 per sheet, available at Sasa stores.
